He's been pretty toxic to me in past threads and made personal attacks, and I don't think that someone that does that should be on the user council.
Hope people voting for seano don't complain if he does something retarded with his seat. It might be funny now but giving him legitimate say over the sub forum and how it manages is going to be a terrible idea.
If you want someone with much more right wing views then at least posters like @Sgman1 and @Joey Skylynx can act mature and take the role seriously even if their political opinions and debating annoy some issues.
I would thank to thank those who nominated me and who have voted for me for your votes of confidence. However I feel that I do not have the time and focus to give this position the attention it would deserve and consequently I would fail to live up to the responsibly invested within me by other users, who I would be disappointing.
I would ask that anyone who was planning to vote for me, or who has voted for me already, cast a vote for any of the non-meme candidates. I wish you all a warm and comfortable holiday season.
No offence to seano cos I don't know him well, but it's clear that quite a number of users aren't taking this council seriously because they outright disagree with the idea, or have some other reason, so they might as well nominate 'joke' candidates.
name one thing seano12 ever did or said wrong
never said i love you
This is outrageous!
First, @garry (peace be upon him) leaves this forum to drown in its own feces and NOW @Hezzy , the reliable uncle of this forum, sells the integrity of this election out for fame and riches.
Ever since the end of Garry's (peace be upon him) firm but affectionate reign, we do nothing but squabble over inconsequential shit such as Trump, Tudd and Boilrig's weird infatuation for a foreign referendum.
What we really need now is TRUE AUTHORITY, and I loathe to say it, but only @karimatrix can bear this burden out of these candidates. (I admit, they are good and honest people. Except Boilrig. Frankly, he is kinda stupid.)
Karimatrix has shown unwavering conviction for what he believes is right and true even against the raging tide of facts and reason. That, I think, is the trait of a true leader, and a leader we need in these uncertain times. But even if he is elected, he can only do so much. Make no mistake, this vote is a desperate cry for ACTION.
I grow up with the belief that this place is NOT a democracy and I'll forever stand by that. Remember, our last election left us with broken promises and simmering resentment. *cough* banime *cough*
Garry (peace be upon him, please don't delete forum) IS our supreme leader, but what is our worth when our leader abandons us?
@Hezzy , hear my plea, cancel this lottery and bring upon the fascist reign we all love and remember!
What this subforum and forum really needs is, ironically, a facepunch.
ps: Craptasket is gay
I don't even dislike him. He's funny to have around and says funny shit, I just think he shouldn't have control over anything.
I think you just described the role of the village idiot
Ironically that was my title on another forum circa 2006
Anyway repost from last thread:
I didn't think I'd actually be nominated. When I came home from work and read this thread I thought it would be a great idea to have Big Man Tyrone do a pitch for me and I'd post that here. I really don't want to spend hundreds of dollars for big man tyrone to make something for me in less than 24 hours so I will just make a text pitch.
If I am elected to this position I promise to perform my duties responsibly. I understand that I would be playing the role of moderator-lite. What I'm most interested in is trying to keep threads on topic because what I have observed time after time are threads going off into weird tangents. I wish to facilitate a political forum environment where everyone has a voice no matter their political affiliation. I promise to treat all users equally despite their comments towards me, especially in this thread. I also promise to judge every post independently and without bias.
A lot of my posts have been silly/satirical in nature. This was always to entertain myself and others. During my term I promise to give up posting anything silly/questionable. :
I wrote a little simulation of the draw, so here's some potential "councils" based on the ratings 2 hours ago.
['Dan The Man', 'seano12', 'Grenadiac', 'Boilrig', 'Zonesylvania']
['Raidyr', 'Borealis', 'elix', 'Dan The Man', 'seano12']
['Raidyr', 'Zonesylvania', 'Grenadiac', 'seano12', 'Borealis']
['Borealis', 'elix', 'Grenadiac', 'seano12', 'Zonesylvania']
['seano12', 'Raidyr', 'Grenadiac', 'elix', 'Zonesylvania']
['HumanAbyss', 'Grenadiac', 'Borealis', 'Dan The Man', 'Zonesylvania']
['Grenadiac', 'zukriuchen', 'Boilrig', 'Dan The Man', 'Borealis']
['seano12', 'elix', 'Grenadiac', 'zukriuchen', 'Raidyr']
['Boilrig', 'Borealis', 'HumanAbyss', 'seano12', 'Grenadiac']
['Grenadiac', 'Borealis', 'Raidyr', 'Zonesylvania', 'seano12']
Out of 100 simulation of 5 draws, Grenadiac has a 96% chance to be in them, seano12 73% chance, Zonesylvania 69%, zukriuchen 52%, Borealis 49%, Raidyr 44%, Dan The Man 43%, Boilrig 28%, HumanAByss 22%, elix 18% and karimatrix 6%.
So out of 100 councils, Grenadiac will be in 96 of them and so on...
@ScriptKitt3h @borndeadman @Tinn @Kirbunny431 Elix has asked no one vote for him and to vote for non-meme candidates, also @Hezzy , might want to add that disclaimer.
Karimatrix at 6%? Clearly evidence Russia has decided not to interfere in our elections imo.
Update to the latest votes and ran 100,000 simulations:
Chance to appear in council:
Dan The Man: 44.38%
There is of course a slight deviation for the percentages due to randomness, but I'm too lazy to count it at the moment.
This is a car crash.
I just thought, these council members have terms of one or two months, are they going to be staggered are we going to have a mess every so often?
YOB TVOU MAT
ANDREY! GET KALASH, ROUND UP VOTERS, GO GO
Do you guys have the mettle with every western election?
This is exactly what will happen and everyone knows it. But it's going to be an 'epic funny' 2 seconds before it goes to shit and no one bothers coming here any more.
That or they just enjoy Chaos. And they get their humor from it.
Honestly, the fact that Seano is so far up there kinda makes this entire thing a joke.
The issue is that people find him hilarious and validate him. Validating him only makes people encourage him more. When people encourage him they end up starting to take him more seriously. When they take him seriously it stops being a joke but they tend to continue acting like it's just because it's hilarious. Anyone who's supporting seano, regardless of how serious they are, is completely missing the fact this is being presented as a serious vote. So they're voting a joke candidate for a serious position simply because they find it funny and thus validating that joke candidate in the process.
These three sentences are a microcosm of exactly why Trump got elected lol
I'm here to accuse the Boilrig campaign of illegally overspending on election advertisements.
Simulations today at 16:21 GMT+1
Chance to appear in council and changes in parenthesis:
Grenadiac: 91.59% (-2.39%)
seano12: 69.42% (+4.06%)
Zonesylvania: 55.88% (-9.45%)
Dan The Man: 49.40% (-5.02%)
zukriuchen': 44.39% (-10.53%)
Borealis: 44.30% (-3.71%)
Raidyr: 44.30% (-0.33%)
karimatrix: 38.85% (+27.33%)
Boilrig: 26.52% (-2.94%)
elix: 19.33% (-9.45%)
HumanAbyss: 16.03% (-6.46%)
Largest gainer today is karimatrix with a whopping 27.33%. Zukriuchen, Borealis and Raidyr now has the same chance to appear in the council.
This is honestly the sort of bullshit I would expect from this poorly thought out plan. Two good choices completely offset by the three worst choices.
